I've been using some form of Covergirl LashBlast Mascara since a few months after the bright orange original (LashBlast Volume) came on the market...so that was about four years ago, yes? I loved that old mascara like I loved Whip It! the movie (<3 Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore, i.e. why I bring it up) but I really don't see a difference between these two formulas.

My lashes look natural but extended and a bit bolder, black as night for sure, and totally clump free; however, between the purple and orange packaging change, my view of both LashBlast Fusion (length+volume) and LashBlast Volume (original) is spot-on-identical. Perhaps if my lashes were naturally shorter or more sparse one formula would triumph over the other.

As of this moment though, I will happily use the rest of this Fusion tube, but will probably go for the slightly cheaper Volume only formula next time (price $6.94 at Walmart.com where I bought this in-store). For a dollar less and a tube of mascara that definitely lasts me EVERYDAY for SIX MONTHS (see my gripe against shelf-life loser here) it's worth just settling for the same results for less in the long term...or I guess a buck extra every half-year isn't going to break anyone's bank.
Although it could buy me two more items for e.l.f. Weeks...which will be coming soon, I swear! I'm just on the brink of a sinus infection now, so I have to focus on rest, fluid intake, and tons of nasal spray and decongestant. Un-fun my weekend, why don't you!
Nutshell: long-lasting, natural, buildable, non-clumping, smooth, well-designed, sensitive-friendly
